Match Preview: Barnsley vs. Preston North End

Tuesday sees Preston North End’s second away trip in four days when they travel to Oakwell to take on Barnsley. They will go into the game needing a response after Saturday’s disappointing 3-0 defeat at Luton Town, an afternoon which you would struggle to take many positives from. North End were second best throughout much of the match, barring a 10-minute spell […]

NEW PODCAST EPISODE: A Day to Forget

Let’s face it, Saturday was a shitter. For us here at FTF, we felt it was worse than after the Rovers game but that’s something we’re sure many people will have different opinions on. This week’s instalment of season two of the From the Finney podcast was, despite the circumstances, an enjoyable one. We discussed the football at the weekend and, to […]

Match Preview: Preston North End vs. Wycombe Wanderers

Preston North End return to Deepdale this afternoon when they take on Gareth Ainsworth’s Wycombe Wanderers. The home form this season has been poor, of course, but this feels like a big chance to keep the momentum going from Tuesday’s excellent win over Bournemouth. Whatever the rights and wrongs of the criticism that has been given out over recent weeks – that’s […]

Analysis

The Impact of No Fans in Stadiums

On March 7th, 2020 North End lost 3-1 to QPR leaving us going home disappointed after a second-half implosion. Not a significant or extraordinary game but it did turn out to be the last time Deepdale had fans present. Unfortunately, it seems as though any chance of us returning anytime soon is slim. This has meant that what should have been a […]

Scott Sinclair: A Statistical Analysis

Scott Sinclair’s clinical brace at Brentford took his goal tally to 6 in North End colours, meaning he has only scored more goals for 3 other clubs – Swansea, Villa and Celtic. That’s quite an astonishing statistic for somebody who has represented 14 clubs, but perhaps it highlights just how patchy his career has been. Now 31, you could pin the blame […]
